CILT Endorsed Supply Chain Risk Management - Virtual Learning

Why Attend

Supply chain managers, procurement managers and sourcing professionals manage a company's activities and spend with its suppliers, which can be a very significant element of a company's total turnover. In the modern day, a company's competitive advantage in most industries will be determined by maximizing its relationships and the diligent management of its forward and backwards facing supply chains. While added value and competitive advantage are found here, they can also be lost here with potential devastating repercussions.

The ability to effectively manage risks in a supply chain is an absolute must in the skill set of any current supply chain professional. This course will equip and develop procurement and supply chain professionals with skills that enable them to operate diligently and effectively with their supply base, mitigating any risks and maximizing all opportunities to gain competitive advantage in their market place.
